The Case Files of the Child Welfare Division (Northern Office) contain personal information about wards of state and other children that came under the supervision of the Children of the State Department and its successors between 1932 and 2003.
Closed D75 years
D75 means these records are closed to the general public for 75 years from the date of the last entry in them. People wishing to access these records should contact Children and Youth Services, which is run by the Department of Health and Human Services. How access is provided once permission is granted will depend on the file. Usually Children and Youth Services request it back and then provide access or copies. Staff at the Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office may be able to assist you in finding other relevant records.
